Hard for the Money (and a Dragon!)
My on-and-off-since-April temp job has finally ground to a halt, and this is my first day off in weeks. Of course, I’ve still got the RenFair:
This is my tenth season working (eleven since I started as a nervous and rather dumb 14-year-old whose mother helped her sew her own costume, thus introducing her to the wonderful world of making one’s own clothes). I’m starting to feel quite old there, but it’s still good fun… and good money. And now I have time to craft again.
To celebrate, an embroidery pattern!
Everyone likes to embroider dragons, right?
This is the first embroidery pattern I’ve posted since I moved to WordPress. This is because I moved to WordPress around the same time I moved to the farm, and I’ve only just gotten around to hooking up the scanner again. Whoops.

You are allowed and indeed encouraged to do whatever you want with the piece(s) (use, reuse, abuse, remix, share), just follow these two simple rules:
1) Give me credit (a link back is always appreciated)
2) Don’t make a profit off any use or modification of my work.
To be fair, should you really want to use them in a profit-making venture, talk to me and maybe we can work something out so everybody wins. Should you want to say thanks, leave a comment and/or tell a friend or six. Finally, if you do make something, let me know and I’ll happily blog it!
You can find a reminder/introduction to embroidery, including basic stitches and a by-no-means exhaustive list of methods of transferring patterns to fabric in this post. Finally: if you’ve got suggestions for embroidery patterns you’d like to see, I would love to hear them (no promises, though). You can find the rest of my patterns under the Embroidery Patterns category.
